A former female Minnesota police officer will receive more than $1 million in multiple lawsuit settlements after learning that dozens of her former co-workers illegally accessed her driver's licence record just to gawk at her picture.

The Minneapolis City Council has agreed last week to pay Anne Marie Rasmusson $392,000, on top of a $280,000 settlement she reached with several other cities whose officers violated the law by accessing her record for personal reasons. 

Rasmusson will also be awarded $385,000 from the city of St. Paul, Minnesota, for a total of $1,057,000 that taxpayers will have to pay, Wired reported. That figure could be even higher if the retired officer wins her suit against the state.
